He further informed that looking into the need of utilizing different medical equipments at various government hospital, a school of technologies has also been established to train the students in the field of MRI, CT scan, and ultrasound so that the shortage of such technical staff could be overcome immediately. Currently, 56 students are enrolled in the first batch for this course. This course is temporary catered at Bilawal Medical College which is indeed not an appropriate place to run that course and therefore we have already submitted a demand for a separate building for this project to the concern department of government of Sindh.
